Motorola’s upcoming X Phone has raked up considerable amount of interest among the tech geeks and the consumers alike. While we still wait for official announcement on this from Motorola or Google, here are some pointers to keep ourselves satiated in between. Like some sources with The Verge who have stated the upcoming X Phone will not be a Droid device with the carrier Verizon. This could be hard to swallow for the moment since all previous flagship devices from Motorola such as the Droid RAZR HD or the Droid RAZR Maxx HD have been Verizon exclusive devices in the US.
All of that will cease of be in the case of the Moto X which Motorola is keen to market as a device that the users can design according to their tastes. Also, the new smartphone won’t be marketed with an overdose of its technical abilities but will still be a contender against the established brands such as the Samsung Galaxy S4 or the Apple iPhone. Top that off with the already announced aspect of the phone to be built in the US itself, which should be seen as a major USP of the devices as well. Motorola also claimed they have received excellent support from the carriers so far which means the new device won’t be exclusive to any particular carrier.
Having said that, Motorola’s special relationship with Verizon will continue to flourish as it used to be in the past. This since there also are reports of the former devoting resources into making a Droid Ultra phone that will make a separate product chain parallel to the X Phone. Details on this are scarce at the moment though a Verizon landing page for the Droid Ultra made an appearance and the only bit it revealed is that the device will be extremely thin.
